Arillas Soundgarden – Sunset on Arillas

The village of Arillas is a thriving costal community in the northwest of the all-year green island of Corfu, Greece.

The area is especially popular with alternative individual tourism from all over the world, attracted by the unique combination of beautiful beaches, idyllic Greek life, international festivals, retreats, gatherings and spiritual offerings as well as an extensive variety of holistic healing options. In the last years Arillas has become one of the hotspots for alternative tourism in Greece.

Prime Concerts on the Olive Tree Stage, Cozy Concert under The Flower, Ceremonies around the Fire and Ecstatic Dancing in all the Garden.

At Arillas Soundgarden fine sounds and enchanted atmosphere inside the magical gardens create the ideal conditions for memorable events. The different stage and setting options accommodate intimate concerts as well as big events with lots of seating as well as space to dance and move all around the old olive trees that gracefully hold the space.

Everything at Arillas-Soundgarden is located harmoniously inside the 1200 sqm garden. The impressive old olive trees are giving shade during the day and lighting up magically at night while many also hold and hide the speakers for balanced high end sound all around the garden.

Arillas Soundgarden – Ecstatic Dance Live DJ

Ecstatic Dance is the vibrant heartbeat of Soundgarden. The all-year conscious dance event features international and local DJs and attracts lovers of free ecstatic dancing from all over the world.

In the summer the dance is happening several times a week in all the Garden, while in the winter the local community is gathering weekly in the Tree-Temple to celebrate their Sunday dance together.

Ecstatic Dance is a danced meditation that frees people from things they are stuck in. We always start with very soft and calm music. In about 2 hours, the music slowly transforms the energy into one or two high beat peeks to really get the dancers into ecstasy. During the dance we go through different energies - sadness, anger, happiness, freedom, peace. At the end there is a calming down phase to bring the dancers to lay on the ground in silence for some more minutes to integrate their inner processes that unfolded during the dance.

Ecstatic Dance is held in a safe environment without conversations, phones, alcohol, intoxicants, observers, judgements - so you can dance spontaneously like nobody is watching.

Under The Flower

In the core of the outside space the 6 meter high Flower overlooks the wooden circular dancefloor/tribune creating a unique fairytale atmosphere, where you can literally experience being Under the Flower while watching the sunset, dancing, listening to concerts, attending a Yoga class. The Flower is giving shade during the day and pulsating in warm colours at night, turning the space into a magical world of its own kind.

The Olive Groove Floor is a 200sqm large level area next to Under The Flower and surrounded by beautiful old olive trees with the perfect smooth dancefloor for barefoot dancing, Yoga and more. The high-end sound system spread evenly in the trees around the whole outside area creates an even balanced audible experience that inspired the name of the place “Soundgarden”.
